At the height of his busy writing and preaching ministry, Warren Wiersbe was often referred to as The Pastor’s Pastor. RHMA is privileged to call him our friend and to have had him speak at several of our conferences over the years. Click here to listen to his 1998 messages on Rediscovering the Church. It’s as timely now as it was then!





Gordon-Conwell Seminary prof and small-town pastor (and small-town PK!) Stephen Witmer shares the secret small churches know best.

Stephen will be a plenary speaker at our 2019 Small-Town Pastors’ Conference.










If you’re a pastor’s wife in rural ministry, we encourage you to check this out!
